The Truss Manager has two new columns added to the table, Color Type and Color. By default, Color Type is set to Object Color, which is default functionality, which means Truss objects will be displayed as defined by their properties.
However, when dealing with complex truss structures, it is useful to identify each component with a different color in order to avoid confusion. Using this new feature, a different color may be assigned to each Truss piece (Name), for easy visual identification.
This causes that piece to always be displayed in that color, ignoring the color of the Layer it is on or the color that was assigned to it within its Properties.
This does not change the Object properties of the Truss Object, so when switching Color Type back to “Object Color”, it reverts back to its usual color, as per its properties.
